This Sunday is Trinity Sunday, and every Trinity Sunday I remember working in a church with three ministers who would all say to one another,
” why don’t you preach this Sunday?”
“ No, no, you go ahead.”
“Who, me? But I did it last year.”
This week I have been reading a book by Bishop Gene Robinson, ”God believes in Love”, in which he gave this simple explanation;
God is the creator of all, who created the world and all its creatures, including us. He continues to create anew at all times.
Jesus is the human presence of God, at a certain time, in a certain place, giving us a model of how someone behaves if they are truly in tune with God’s will.
Once Jesus was no longer present as a human, the Holy Spirit came as a source of spiritual strength and inspiration, to be present to us when we need to know what God is calling us to do, what Jesus would have done, what we should do in the time and place we inhabit.
In John’s gospel, Jesus says to his disciples,
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth. 16:12-13
Personally, I really felt that Spirit of truth present last week in the wonderful song that Voices Rising sang, about the hope of a parent that their child will be fully loved and accepted whatever path they are born into, or choose in their life. What more could any parent ask?
